England’s Trott forecasts turnaround in World Cup fortunes

Chennai, Mar. 5 (ANI): England one-drop batsman Jonathan Trott believes that his side will effect a turnaround in their World Cup fortunes when they take on South Africa on March 6.

Andrew Strauss’s men probably need to win two of their three remaining group games to qualify for the quarter- finals.

On Friday, the team attended a compulsory fielding session at the M A Chidambaram Stadium, reflecting its grim resolve to put their slip-up against Ireland behind them.

Jonathan Trott, who made a run-a-ball 92 in that game but was one of six wickets to fall in the last eight overs while England added only 53 runs, said: ‘We have to play 100 overs of good cricket, especially when games can change so quickly.

“We were very disappointed, but it would be foolish to look back. We’ve got three very winnable games coming up and we’ve got to peak at the right time,” the Daily Mail quoted him, as saying.
